~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Blueprint takes a simple pullover silhouette and elevates it to something special. Graphic lace, a cropped (but adjustable) body with lots of positive ease and a notched hem, and slim sleeves make it carefree, fresh and modern. Top-down construction make this easy to customize the length.

The pullover begins at the back neck/shoulder line where short rows are used to shape the shoulders for a more refined fit. Once the back is worked to the underarm, stitches are picked up along the shoulders for the front, where the lace panel begins. Stitches are then joined to work in the round to the desired length. Sleeve stitches are picked up at the armhole and worked in the round to the bottom edge.

The lace pattern is both written and charted.
